The Cilantro/Coriander Organic, 'Coriandrum sativum', is one of the most useful and tasty herbs available. Both the foliage (cilantro) and seed (coriander), make this herb very versatile. Cilantro is also called Chinese parsley. Cilantro has a thousand uses from as simple as a sprig in chicken soup to chopped in Mexican food. The crushed seeds season stews, cookies, and beans. The Cilantro will bolt (flower) later than regular Cilantro. This plant was cultivated 3000 years ago by the Greeks and Romans to make vinegar to preserve meat. The foliage of the Cilantro plant has a sage flavor with a strong suggestion of citrus and is used more than the seeds at this time. The seed, Coriander, has a strong citrusy, lemon flavor. Senna tea is made from crushed Coriander. Plant in the spring after the last average frost date. This packet plants 13 - 10 foot rows.
